Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Refining cover lines, part of Designing a Magazine Cover.
Part 3 of adding and refining the cover lines. We are going to have to scrunch things up…a bit down here, because one thing that I forget to consider was the Barcode.…So I am going to place the Barcode, and let's create a new layer for this, I'll press Command+D…or Ctrl+D in the Exercise Files folder, place this, and I am going to put it right there.…I want it to go in the bottom corner.…
So things need to move up to allow room for that. I am going to lock the Barcode,…come back to the Color Lines layer, and that looks better now.…In each case, I am going to fit the contents to the frame, I am coming to each text frame,…and double-clicking on its bottom center handle, need to make sure that the end of story marker…is on the last line of those pieces of type for that to work.…
And having done that, we should be able to a make sure that they are using our smart guides.…You can see those green lines kicking in there, that the distance between all of…these elements is the same.…I am now going to come and just position this piece on the right, let's drag down our guides…
